We hope that you enjoy finding out about our wonderful school.
To further support the positive journey of our schools, we are proposing to merge them into a single primary school from the 2021/22 academic year. It is incredibly important to us that we hear the views of everyone in our community with regards to the plans to create one primary academy, and so the formal consultation period for this will run from Tuesday 12 January until midday Friday 26 March 2021. For more information click here. A presentation for families to view is available here.
The transfer to junior school admission round is for children in their last year at an infant school (currently in Year 2). Pupils transfer from infant schools to junior schools in the year after their 7th birthday (they will be age 7+ on 1 September 2021).
Parents need to make an application, even if their child currently attends a Year 2 class at Cliff Park Infant Academy.
The easiest way for parents to apply is on-line at www.admissionsonline.norfolk.gov.uk or they can request an application form from the Customer Services Centre on 0344 800 8020.
Additional information, and a link to the online application, is available on the County Council’s website: https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-admissions/transfer-to-junior-school

We are a happy and caring school and offer an atmosphere where children are supported and challenged in their thinking, strive for continuous self- improvement, and have the desire to, and are given, the opportunities to develop the skills to become life-long learners.
At our school, we believe that it is our privilege and responsibility to inspire each and every one of our pupils to have high aspirations and to believe that they can and will achieve their dreams.
We are a ‘Learning without Limits’ school. We are determined that all children can and will achieve, and ensure that children learn within an enabling environment. We believe that everybody is important, everybody has a place and everybody learns from everybody else. We actively promote children’s choices and ownership of their learning. This means that we group children flexibly, facilitating children’s choices and offer our children a series of open challenges so that they can take control of their own learning and aim high, without any ceiling being placed upon what might be possible for them to achieve.
We recognise that every child’s learning journey is individual and we cater for and celebrate the diversity of learning styles and needs in every class.
We are all proud of our school, our wonderful children and their many successes. Our committed team work exceptionally well together to enrich learning experiences for our children.

We believe that a strong home school partnership supports your child in being happy and confident in school and achieving well.
This partnership begins before your child starts school through our new parents evenings and opportunities to visit and see our school in action. For families moving to the area and pupils changing schools, visits are always welcomed. Our staff are very approachable and work to develop a strong partnership with parents at all stages as your child moves through our school. We have regular parents’ evenings, learning themes, newsletters and updates on English and Maths to keep you informed.
Marley in Marsh Harrier and Noah in Peregrine recently set themselves a challenge to virtually run to the top of Mount Everest (64km/40miles)! For each distance-based exercise they completed, their markers would advance along the Conqueror map of Everest. They could walk, jog, run, cycle, or even swim. To add an extra incentive, for every […]
